Nadia Kuprian, PhD
Dr. Nadia Kuprian is a licensed clinical psychologist who sees adults, couples and adolescents. She works with people who struggle with anxiety, depression, interpersonal and relationship issues, body image and eating disorders, obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors, traumatic experiences, and substance abuse. Her approach to therapy is largely psychodynamic and relational (a “two-person approach”) where processes that occur in the therapy room are explored with the same level of depth and focus as events that happen in patients’ lives outside of therapy. She believes that therapy is a place of growth where empathy and acceptance are balanced with the challenges that are necessary to gain a new perspective and to experience a new way of being. Dr. Kuprian also integrates principles of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness in her work to help patients who struggle with impulsivity, emotion regulation, and dealing with various relationship and life stressors.
Dr. Kuprian received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Adelphi University's Derner School of Psychology in New York. Her pre-doctoral clinical experience includes the Center for Psychological Services at Adelphi University, an in-patient psychiatric unit at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center, The Village Institute for Psychotherapy, and William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis and Psychology. She earned her Master and Bachelor Degrees in Sociology at Lomonosov Moscow State University in Russia. In addition to practicing, Dr. Kuprian writes and has presented her research on process and outcome of psychotherapy at several international conferences. She has lived in three different continents and is fluent in English and Russian, and she is proficient in Spanish.
